This notebook cover is made with quality in mind. They actually do make them when ordered so I had to wait about a week or two for the cover to be made, plus the shipping time which was quite fast.
When I ordered it, I was thinking I was only getting the cover by itself in some common packaging box. But to my surprise, it came in this fancy cardboard box which contain the following:
1. a red zip bag which contains a thank-you/info card that is probably handwritten (the ink had some light and dark areas suggesting it's handwritten),
2. three packets of tea and coffee from Turkey,
3. a beautiful postcard,
4. a card/certificate detailing who and when the leather good is made,
5. a coupon for the next purchase,
6. a leather pen sleeve,
7. and the leather B6 notebook cover.
The Notebook Cover:
I have a B6 notebook that is 15x182x128mm in size with a paperboard cover. This leather cover fits just right although it was a bit of a challenge to slip the notebook's soft paperboard cover into the sleeves.
The sleeves where you insert the notebook's paperboard cover each have a horizontal slit that runs almost across the sleeve so you can store credit card/bookmark in it. You can also use the sleeve itself to store any cards that won't fit the slit.
The backside sleeve has a little folded loop on the top right corner for attaching a medium-sized pen. Upon opening and closing the notebook, the paperboard cover does tend to slip out from the sleeve since nothing is holding it in place. So, adjustments and care need to be taken when closing (or opening) the notebook. This is just how it is.
This leather cover does have this weird but pleasant smell (imagine the sensation of smelling gasoline), probably from the dyeing and curing process of the leather. It kinda smells like gunpowder and that's not exactly bad to me.
I chose Crazy Horse Brown because I find it to be a better shade of brown plus the rustic look. The leather is quite smooth, soft and relatively thick.
Although the thread for stitching the whole cover looks thin, it's most likely a double stitch (very durable stitching method that uses two threads) because I do not see any markings from a sewing machine imprinted along the stitch line. Take this with a grain of salt though because I'm not an expert. I only picked up some leather knowledge from watching Youtube videos.
The Extra Goodies:
I haven't tried the coffee and tea packets yet so I can't say much about that but I do enjoy tasting foreign brands of tea and coffee.
The red zip bag is just about as big as my notebook and currently holds my brush-pens, the leather pen sleeve and some of the cards all together.
The leather pen sleeve is made with a different colour and thickness of leather. It would be nice if it matched the notebook cover but, hey, it's free. The fact that that was included along with the other stuff is already proof that the manufacturer cares and takes pride with their products. So, there's no problem with that.
As for the cards, well, those are straightforward. I use some of them as bookmarks and keep the rest around with the fancy box as it feels rude to just throw them out (They really went all out after all).
This rustic leather cover is wonderful. It always brings an extra sense of pleasure whenever I write in my notebook. I've only had it for about a month but I'm sure it will serve me well for many more years to come. Thank you Galen Leather for this wonderful notebook cover.
After using her for almost two years now, I am still so smitten with this piece…she’s currently being used for moon journaling, and I really couldn’t have chosen a more suitable option…all of the character and little imperfections acquired over time just add to the absolute perfection of her which is so reminiscent of the moon…love her!
Bought this hoping it would fit the common planner full year and it does! So excited to us this. It is not too bulky, minimal and handles well being tossed in my work bag. Love the pen loop to always ensure I have a pen instead of dig around.
It's hard to find a good B6 sized cover, but this one is great! Make sure and fill it with a notebook that doesn't have a thick spine or cover, otherwise it won't shut correctly.
Well, what can I say... This is my 2nd purchase for the same cover (size and colour).
Love the leather feel and colour. Using with Stalogy B6 (365 days) which fit perfectly.
Très belle couverture, avec un cuir fin mais qui a de la tenue, ce qui est un bel exploit. La couleur et la qualité du cuir sont super!
J'ai ajouté un élastique pour qu'il reste bien fermé quand je l'emmène avec moi. J'y ai mis mon Stalogy 1/2 year, mais je l'ai également essayé avec le 365 jours et il convient parfaitement.
The colour is absolutely gorgeous in real life. Nice and light and can fit the A6 Hobonichi planner perfectly as well. There’s a pocket slit at the back where I thread through an elastic from my Travelers passport that I use as extra security when I want it closed inside my handbag. But here I’ve got the Galen bookmark wrapped around it. Highly recommend!
So thankful for this cover. The Crazy Horse Smoky is such a beautiful neutral. My first Galen purchase and I'm extremely happy with the quality.
The cover is amazing! Sturdy and a beauty! but the loophole is not quite as firm. I put my pilot custom 823 through the loophole and well, it is a tight fit. It's been about two days and the loophole is coming apart a little bit. Overall an amazing cover! Just wished the loophole was more elastic or a little bigger to fit my pen.
